Musée des Automates, Limoux
(3.9/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Gain a new appreciation for uncanny automation at Musée des Automates, a museum featuring about 250 automatic puppets, nearly all created in the site's workshop. Don't be alarmed when these puppets start moving--they are designed to. The owner of the museum creates each item in a workshop, which you can usually tour if you ask. Explore seven rooms of animated puppets and objects made of metal, wood, and paper dating from the 19th century. Put Musée des Automates into our Limoux vacation route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • 100 words... It's too short if you want to talk about, and especially too long to evoke this great Museum. If you go to Limoux, visit required about 1:30, it's... I have no words for this shot of lightning.

  • Without Proust of course, but the clock is pervasive by the movement and return in the past. A nice visit to a 45' in the fantasy and reality of the transactions updated to music by this artist. The adjoining workshop allows you to see how we make and repair costumes and watch movements. Great for kids and adults too. Parking is available in the small course.
